GATHERING THE FRAGMENTS 2017, Mixed Media on Panel, 24 X 45 X 1.5
I'm pleased to announce the release of a new series of paintings. With this body of work I wanted to reveal the essential elements within a landscape - to create a very focused narrative by observing the foundational forms, structures and motions within the landscape.
Technically I had to transition from my traditional oil on canvas process to materials that allowed for a more physically manipulated surface. So instead of canvas, these works works are on panel which allows for the etching and gauging that form the lines or narrative. Using panel also allowed me to sand and manipulate the surface in ways canvas would never permit. Acrylic paints, gesso, Bondo & modeling paste were all used in the creation of these works.
TRANSCENDING THE MEDIUM, Cumbrerland Gallery Nashville TN
Cumberland Gallery will kick off the summer with TRANSCENDING THE MEDIUM, the first of two group exhibition this season. From July15th through August 123th, the focus is on six artist who have overcome the challenge of working with different types of medium using their idiosyncratic vocabulary and signature style. Brad Durham, Kurt Kemp, Bob Nugent, Andrew Saftel, Marko Spalatin and Andrew Winn, each present one large unique piece alongside a grouping of smaller works on paper, ai.e. a portfolio of prints, a series of drawings or a book of etchings. While showcasing the contrast in size, technique and material, the work remains continuous, instantly recognizable and fundamental to the artist's oeuvre.
In January 2017 I started a series of landscape "drawings" The simple intention was 2 fold - to do 2 a day and experiment with materials for one month. Of those 60 works, these are the ones that survived. Each was created on vellum using acrylic paints, inks & gesso
